An Eighth Day View:
Leo Tolstoy is best known for his novels Anna Karenina and War and Peace. But later in life he experienced a dramatic conversion and dedicated himself and his writing to illuminating Christianity. Walk in the Light While There Is Light is the second of three collections of his short stories dealing with religious themes. The first story, "Walk in the Light While There Is Light," is set during the time of the early church and is the story of one manu2019s conversion from paganism to Christianity. "The Long Exile" tells of a Russian man falsely accused of murder and sentenced to twenty-six years of labor in Siberia, where he learns about truth and forgiveness.The third story, "Little Girls Wiser Than Their Elders," illustrates Jesusu2019 teaching that we must become like little children to enter the kingdom of God.All three stories maintain their original classic Russian folktale flavor while expressing and expounding Tolstoyu2019s fervent and thoughtful faith in the gospel.
